Healing Hands is a part of my life story how I was able to overcome the challenges that I've faced as child and up into adulthood. Growth is a natural process of life but if the foundation is not set right, your growth can be impaired. Parental separation; family disintegration; verbal, mental, and physical abuse; sexual molestation; abandonment; hunger; false accusations; feeling rejected; low self-esteem; depression; marital problems; betrayal; anger; bitterness; and resentment, but yet, desperation for change drove me into the arms of God's loving embrace where I found a sense of meaning, purpose for living, healing, and the ability to forgive by exchanging my will for God's will for my life. Our gifts, talents, and abilities do not always come wrapped in pretty packages but sometimes hidden and then revealed through the seemingly harsh experiences of life. Like Joseph in the Bible, you may suffer at the hands of your own family members and experience some very dark times of your life or by the heavy hands of cruel taskmasters who would want to whip you into subjection or by a Potiphar's wife who would try to rip your robe of righteousness off of you because of their own ignorance of who they are, who and whose you are, and of the will and plans of God for your life. But they can only give to you what they possess and that is their pain. It is written in Romans 8:20 (KJV), "And we know, that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose." There is purpose in your pain. There is testimony and message in your test and mess. There is a crown for your cross and there is compassion for the poor and sick soul. My prayer is that you will experience a sense of peace and healing as you read Healing Hands.
